Steve Jobs Calls for an end to DRM

Steve Jobs has posted a revolutionary article on Apple's website entitled, "Thoughts on Music", in which he compares the sales of CDs, which are free from Digital Rights Management (DRM), to sales of individual tracks on the iTunes Music Store, which do have DRM. His argument is that major record labels are selling so many CDs right now and that, if Apple is able to remove the DRM from tracks it sells, even more tracks would be sold.

I probably can't do the article justice. There's more of a discussion on music players and other stuff. Head on over to the article.
